This was a nice surprise! We wanted a good breakfast and we were not disappointed. This cafe is definitely a hole in the wall and worth the drive. I had the standard two egg breakfast (with egg whites) and my husband had the cowboy breakfast. I will call out the bacon. It was a good cut and very meaty. The... More

Good people, excellent food, breakfast served as long as open. Three of us had breakfast, one had very tasty burrito with home made and specially prepared relleno.

We stopped at Jc's the day we flew into Denver. We were tired from an early flight and we found some incredible comfort food! Like the other reviews state, the restaurant is definitely of the hole in the wall variety but the food is delicious! I could see the cook tapping away at the grill not long after we ordered....

Love this off the beaten path local mom & pop stop for the best home cooked breakfast in town! Live like a local and give this little place a go. The "Mass Confusion" is a must-have if you don't care about your cholesterol levels and get a half order unless you have the appetite of a linebacker! Seriously! I get... More

When you first walk in, the decor throws you a bit. But it's awesome! Big burgers! The square was great. Breakfast all day. Lots of sandwiches and Hispanic specialties. Well worth the stop after touring Red Rocks.

Great hole in the wall place for breakfast. As anyone whose favorite meal is breakfast knows these are the beat places. The Huevos Garcia was great. They also give an unbelievable discount to military members and veterans - 50%. That is a serious thank you for your service!

Loved it. Simple, unique, and tasty food. It's the anti-trendy. They serve very standard breakfast fare. It's good, normal in every way, fast, and with very friendly service. Reminded me of so many hole in the wall breakfast joints I used to eat at in the south. I loved it. When I want a basic, simple breakfast, this will be... More

Great breakfast, good service and reasonable prices. We go here for Sunday breakfast often and have always had a great meal. It is very popular with the locals and the Mines students. The staff and the atmosphere is down home.

We had some other business and when complete asked if there was a place close for breakfast. JC's was recommended. My wife and I both had breakfasts, which were good and the quantities ample. Yes, there's a local atmosphere here with the names of locals on candles painted on the walls. It's small so you see what's happening in the... More
